follow the facts. we do not share outside the justice department, outside the fbi the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. >> let's jump right in and bring in our friday morning political power panel. we have jackie kucinich political reporter for "usa today", democratic strategist blake zeb and msnbc contributor robert trainum. great to have you all here. we just heard from congressman king earlier today saying the general was asked right off the top whether the affair had an impact on his testimony. he said no. they moved on. but are all indications then that the affair is now a side note and lawmakers are truly focused on what took place in benghazi and the intelligence they have now? >> this very minute, yeah. i think that's the case. will that remain the focus? i don't know. because there's a lot of questions still out there about petraeus and his relationship with his biographer as well as joe kelly in tampa. and general allen. i mean, there are a lot of moving parts here.
to testify tomorrow. are you concerned over the way the fbi handled the situation so far? specifically when you look at this? do you think the president should have been told about the investigation earlier? >> well, i'm on homeland security and my first priority is to ensure the national security of this nation but as well i want to not have us forget that we lost four valiant americans and we must continue to mourn them. it must be a sad time for their family. but i believe in process. and i do believe there is a time when the president of the united states should be notified. however, the fbi proceeds in investigations all the times. we should have some standards as to whether or not the fbi was in order in looking at what i consider may have been private matters. if it had to do with national security or they thought a crime was in play and they had the right to do so, i don't think we have the necessary standards. it looks like we don't have a test or at least it seems that we as congresspersons are concerned, when is the test when the president should be notified? the key question tod
of the intelligence community there, folks from the state department, the f.b.i. everybody there was asked do you know who made the changes? nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the target points that was not there was the white house. >> watergate style hearings are not needed. but they are calling for such a committee. >> shannon: doug, thank you very much. all right, here with his reaction to the israel and libya situations, homeland security chair and intelligence committee member pete king. thank you. thank you very much. >> shannon: start with pennington libya. what we do know and -- benghazi libya. what we know and don't know. there is a great number of talking points that it seems from when they left the c.i.a. or left with general petraeus seen of them, to when they ultimately got to ambassador rice there was a change. >> i don't know what the democrats in the white house are trying to hide. it's not what they are saying. they both said the intelligence community in its entirety signed off on talking points. they went to the administration. come back and the key language was changed. wh
reveals as to whether or not he misused resources. tell me what is the fbi's conclusion about the documents, the chas fied documents that broad broadwell allegedly had on her computer. what is going to happen with general allen, the war chief, he had 20 thousand pages back and forth with jill kelley, the social it that paula broadwell was e-mailing and only five were of a questionable nature. you have all of these facts swirling and lives and reputations in the balance being judged. i want to get down to the bottom of the facts. it's not my job to judge these people. >> okay. kimberly dozier, many thanks. great conversation. appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> has technology reduced the violence in the middle east? we will look at the iron dome defense system coming up. try running four.ning a restaurant is hard, fortunately we've got ink. it gives us 5x the rewards on our internet, phone charges and cable, plus at office supply stores. rewards we put right back into our business. this is the only thing we've ever wanted to do and ink helps us do it. make your mark with ink from
there, including folks from the state department, the fbi -- everybody there was asked, do you know who made these changes? and nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the white house. >> reporter: democratic senator dianne feinstein said on "meet the press" anybody that brings weapons and mortars and rpgs is a terroranist my view, i mean, that's pretty clear. unquote. republicans maintain that miles per hour between the issuance of the cia talking points and susan rice's appearance on the sunday talk show, the wording of the talking points was changed to eliminate any reference to any specific terrorist group or terrorrive attack. bow friday, deputy national security advisers ben rose, told reporter, quoting now-- the only edit that was made by the white house and by the state department was to change the word consulate to the word diplomatic facility. bottom line, someone is being very, very loose with the facts there. hillary clinton has agreed to testify. former director petraeus may again testify in open session. what if you date has yet
's the surveillance state aspect of it. why was the fbi raiding his e-mail and what is the threshold for that? then i think the way in which the mythology that david petraeus cultivated around himself. it was a combination of performance in the battled field, i'm not the best judge of this, substantively quite good along with a savvy way of getting the press to go along with the story he was telling about david petraeus. one of the things we're seeing in the context of this decade is the military is the most trusted institution in american life. part of that has to do with the military divide, tom ricks was saying 1% of the people population fight all of the wars, 80% when you don't count family members, don't care. a lot of it is not registering in the american public's mind. when that detachment happens, the distance allows us from a safe move to say i trust the military. the people who are in the military have extremely complicated questions about whether or not to trust the military because people who are in any institution, public school teachers have complicated feelings about the public school
the election that his c.i.a. director was being investigated by the f.b.i. you have spoken with intelligence officials. >> look. >> can that be true? >> i spoke to a former c.i.a. director last week about this. i said how long would it have taken if your name came up while you were director, how long would it take the president to findhe said probably two or thre days, maybe a day if he was out of the country but he would have been notified instantly. >> that is the duty of whom? >> the justice department to notify the president. >> shepard: z what happens now? >> this is not like watergate by the fact you have four dead americans at a critical time not only in history but in the time of trying to settle the middle east. the facts are we had intelligence indicating there was a threat and failed to act. the day of total chaos then afterwards, to changed the points? this is not a girl scout cookie order form, this is national intelligence. i can't believe no one knows who changed the points. >> all this -- moved on to the next office and stamped. your insight is second to none, lieutenant colo
